We have a fantastic, dedicated, and compassionate volunteer group, and they're here at the shelter every day of the year, tirelessly and lovingly helping us care for our shelter pets. Want to join us? Read more about our volunteer program needs!

We rely on our foster program volunteers to provide extra care to shelter pets, by taking them into their homes to provide love and care. Each year, foster families give hundreds of shelter pets the extra attention and time in a home that they need to recover from illness or injury, have a break from the shelter, or time to reach that 2-month mark and be ready for adoption.

Are you interested in hosting a supply drive, or are you curious about what type of donations the shelter can use? Maybe you'd like to know what our shelter dogs' favorite toys are, or what treats the shelter cats like the most? We've got a whole list ready!
